This year the Beyond Diversity Club, the New Legacy Committee, and the office of Student Equity are sponsoring an Action Fair and a keynote speaker!
The keynote speaker is Ange-Marie Hancock, who will be talking on Monday, Oct 19, 12:30-1:50pm in Dietrich Theater about the role of intersectionality in social justice work and how to avoid oppression olympics. Here is a link to more information: http://www.ange-mariehancock.com. The Action Fair will take place in the quad from 9:30am-12:30pm on Monday, Oct 19 and from 9:30am-3:30pm on Tuesday, Oct 20. The Action Fair and the Keynote are free and open to the public.
For those who would like a presence at the Action Fair, please read the following:
This year we are hoping to showcase community organizations and student clubs providing options for engagement to address social problems – bridging the link in real time between education and taking action. Organizations and clubs will need to provide clear direction to fair attendees about how to reasonably take action about a given social problem (keep in mind that most students have very limited financial resources and limited time). We are asking that proposals for Action Fair tables/booths be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, Oct 13 at noon with a description of which social problem(s) will be highlighted and which actions will be promoted.
